Not unlike the plaid school uniform skirt I wore for so many years of my childhood, this vivid handbag makes quite a statement. I think it’s safe to say the Henri Bendel West 57th Plaid Satchel is far more fashionable than the stiff-upper-lip style I sported in the old days. This roomy bag is trimmed with leather and edgy stud detailing along the base. It’s modern enough to fit into any woman’s wardrobe, yet feels cozy and seasonally appropriate thanks to its warm color palette. Available for $328 at Henri Bendel.
